Ari Newman at Techstars has a great post up titled The Traveling Spouse Relationship Hack. If you are in a relationship and one (or both) of you are traveling a lot, try his simple hack to make your life better.
“My wife and I have come up with what we think is a pretty slick plan to combat all the stress in our lives while helping us grow closer together and reconnect. We try to get away, just the two of us, 2-3 times a year—something I like to refer to as the traveling spouse relationship hack. (Sorry kiddos!)”
Amy and I have been doing something similar for 17 years. We call it Qx Vacation – we take a week a quarter off the grid.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a weekend, a week, or a month. Make sure you spend 1:1 time alone with the person you were put on this planet to be with.
Ari – thanks for the reminder!
